Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett was recently interviewed by The RockÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Jay and Dunc. Hammett talked about ToolÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s upcoming album, guitar and releasing his first beer.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Congratulations on releasing your first beer. How does that work out for you? Do you just get it for pre-show, or are you, like, Ã¢â‚¬ËœIÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m gonna be drinking my own beerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢?Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t really drink before a show. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s, like, asking for real trouble. There was a time when we used to drink quite a lot before we went onstage, but you know, responsibility and professionalism have become a priority here in Metallica land.
So when it comes to stuff like that, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re pretty responsible and boring these days. But having said that, thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s always a refrigerator filled with the Enter Night beer at every one of our shows that people can just walk up and help themselves with.
I personally stopped drinking four years ago, but you know, I know that Enter Night is a good beer because I smelled it.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“You guys have now released 10 albums. Do you have any advice for Tool on how they can finally finish their fucking next album?Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Well, I talked to Adam Jones quite a bit, you know, and the last thing I knew, he was dealing with artwork, so thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s great. If theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re finishing the artwork, it must be close.Ã¢â‚¬Â
